NOTE: If you wish to install FhSim for model development, skip to the next section.
To install FhSim with user privileges, simply run the FhSim Installer (e.g.
FhSim-vs14_amd64_Installer.exe) which can be downloaded from Artifactory. If you do not have access to this site, please contact the Marine ICT group in SINTEF Ocean.
This installer must be run with administrator privileges since it has the option of adding FhSim to the PATH environmental variable on your computer. After accepting the agreement when running the installer, the installer lets you choose what to install, as shown in the figure below.
Figure showing the different components that can be installed
It is recommended to check all the boxes. If you have the Visual Studio redistributables installed already the installer will find out and alert you.
To install FhSim for model development purposes, it is required that you satisfy the following requirements before continuing this installation guide:
Additionally, it is recommended to install
a. To download the BuildScripts from stash, navigate to the chosen install folder and run the following command in your command prompt
git clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/sfhbas/buildscripts.git
b. To install the BuildScripts, simply set
SFH_BUILDSCRIPTS_DIR as an environmental variable to point to the buildscripts folder. Also set the environmental variable
SFH_DEV_DIR, which decides where downloaded thirdparty dependencies and installation of own code will be placed.
a. The FhSim Tutorial folder used for developing SimObjects can be downloaded from stash using git. Navigate to the chosen installation folder and execute the following git-command:
git clone ssh://email@example.com/fhsim/fhsimtutorial.git
Note that it is possible to rename the folder, but carefully follow the instructions in the
README.md file inside the folder1.
b. To build the SimObjects in the FhSimTutorial-folder, simply run the following commands2
mkdir build cd build cmake -G "Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64" .. cmake --build . --config <OPTION> --target install
<OPTION> is set to
release. Also note that the install-target installs the compiled SimObjects in the FhSim working environment.
NOTE: To learn how to develop new SimObjects, see the tutorials.
1: This requires Cygwin when working in Windows.
2: Note that
-G "Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64" is not necessary to add if Visual Studio 14 2015 is the default compiler. As for now VS14 must be used since the buildscripts depend on it.
